Hi, I had read that massaging warm olive oil into the scalp and leaving it on as long as possible has helped a lot and regrown hair. Have you heard of that? I have a different diagnosis than you but am going to try anyway. I am going to look up this inositol...does it have any side effects that you know of? I am thinning considerably front hairline, it is even see-through in some lights. The rest of my hair is thick and coarse. My husband says I am obsessed but it worries me very much. S.
